Four-star safety Bundage talks ASU visit

Four-star Oklahoma safety Calvin Bundage has a brother who plays for Arizona State's biggest rival but the Sun Devils are his preferred school in the state.

The lone prospect from Oklahoma in the Scout300 visited Arizona State Friday and is increasingly considering the Sun Devils a strong contender for his future services.

Calvin Bundage, a 6-foot-3, 200 pound safety at Santa Fe High School in Edmond, got a better feel for how ASU coaches would use him in their defense and felt it would be a good fit.

"They showed me a lot of film on the Spur position and the free safety position so those are the two positions they want me to play," Bundage said. "It fits me really well. I get to blitz a lot and also stay in coverage, so it works well.

"I liked what position they wanted me to play and it was good learning a lot more about the program. They are building a lot of new facilities and I liked that a lot too. It'll be done when I'm pretty much just coming in so that would be nice to be one of the first players with everything new."

The No. 1 ranked player in the state by OKPreps, Bundage is No. 243 overall in the country and the No. 13 safety. At the high school level he moves between safety and outside linebacker, and thus is a hybrid Spur candidate in the ASU scheme.

Bundage's brother Cayman Bundage will be a returning senior starter for the Arizona Wildcats at offensive tackle this season, but Calvin is more interested in the Sun Devils. He listed a Top-7 of ASU, Arkansas, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon and TCU and said he's planning on taking the maximum five official visits before reaching a decision.

ASU is going to get one of the official visits according to Bundage.

"The coaches definitely showed me a lot, so I like it," he said. (Safeties) Coach (Chris) Ball is really cool. He knows a lot about the game and just wants me to be a part of the defense. Having a good relationship with the coaches is a big thing to me and then also early playing time."
